The final score was a little closer this time, but the Sacramento Kings dropped their second straight game in a 110-92 loss to the Washington Wizards at Capital One Arena on Monday night.

The Kings were looking to bounce back after a rough 118-91 loss to the Knicks while the Wizards were searching for their third straight win.

Randolph did Randolph things early in the game. The Kings had a 17-12 with 6:15 left in the first quarter.

George Hill also had an impact as he made a three-pointer with 3:56 left. Hill finished with 13 points and the Kings led the Wizards 32-25 at the end of the first quarter.

The Kings and Wizards had a back-and-forth second quarter. Kelly Oubre Jr. dunked it home to put Washington back on top (36-34) with 9:05 left. Sacramento then regained the lead (41-40) just 2:14 later when De’Aaron Fox threw a pass to Buddy Hield, who put the ball in the basket for a three-pointer.

The Kings trailed the Wizards 57-51 at the half. The Washington offense was on fire as John Wall scored 16 points, Mike Scott scored 10 points and Oubre Jr. had seven points along with seven rebounds.

Here’s a fun fact: The Kings were off to a nice start from beyond the arc, shooting six-for-nine from the three-point range (courtesy of Coors Light).

The Wizards’ offense remained dominant in the second half. Wall led the team with 19 points, Marcin Gortat scored 18 points and Otto Porter Jr. had 15 points along with seven rebounds. The Kings fell into an even deeper hole in an 86-71 deficit after the third quarter.

It was closing time in the nation’s capital as the Wizards put the game out of reach with a 91-71 lead over the Kings at the 10:35 mark of the fourth quarter. Although Fox did beat the shot clock buzzer from deep at one point, Sacramento (3-10) was unable to complete a comeback and Washington (8-5) got what they wanted: a third straight win to cap off a four-game homestand.
